I took these because they were fun, bright and it was great time for fall colour. However, the angle is bit odd and may not be the most pleasant one for all viewers. Something to consider when shooting from unique angles.

I have never liked the look of artificially smooth water that you get using neutral density filters and long exposures. I do like the stillness of a nice pond on summer’s day, where the vision is peaceful and pastoral.


Perspective (Two Photographs)

There are some angles of perspective that can be used in photography that are vertiginous and unpleasant. Pointing down at some subjects, for example, may mean that you have framed the subject but the viewer has to take time to compute the photograph. These two photographs come close to illustrating this because of the angle/perspective on the subject.

I like doing landscapes of farms and barns, and every year I wish I could find more. I do most of them in HDR, that is take bracketed shots and combine them in Photoshop and use the HDR to get the colour and black and white to look as natural as possible.

Getting that feeling of place and time in landscape photography is a gift. I am not sure if it’s best expressed in black and white or colour but I know a bucolic scene when I see one. I hope to do more landscapes next summer.

This is a view at the entrance to the nature reserve I frequent. In fact I have taken a lot of shots of birds from just this spot. The black and white has a bit of a sketch element to it, an effect I quite like here. Always nice to photograph a place you love.

My opportunities for landscape photography this year have been few, but I have taken advantage of them. I have tried many of the tricks the articles talk about like leading lines, foreground objects etc.. After a while you get an idea of what works for you, the same for editing. Learn, but make it yours.
